monitoring RDS from a different domain

How to monitor RDS connections in a different domain.

I have an RDS environment in a different domain and I need to monitor connections in that environment.  All I see to monitor connections is the connection manager on the remote gateway server.  That works great, except that I need to monitor it from a different domain.  My users, those who need to monitor it, need to do it from a different domain.

I think my only option is to spin up a VM in that domain and let them RDP to it and install the remote desktop connection manager on that VM.  Does that sound about right?

Anyone know of a better solution?

You could make a RemoteApp out of the Remote Manager easy and convenient way...

ok, so a little guidance on doing that?  the "tool" I need lives on my gateway server.  How do I get that app on my app servers?

Just use this tool to create an installer ...
With this tool you simply point to the manager and you will get a "nice" msi.
You run it on every machine you wan to use it and you get a nice desktop icon ...its a "plain" RDP that fires this specific app but it works like a real desktop application
